Frome Artists Café – First Wednesday Every Month

Open to ALL Creatives 

meet & network with local artists, share events, ideas, inspire, collaborate, enjoy

Time & Place… 7.30 pm The Three Swans, King Street, Frome

Dates for 2017 are at the bottom of this page

Welcome!  The Frome Artists cafe is organised by Caroline Walsh-Waring, a locally based artist.  We have no agenda or set format, we tried that and it didn’t work, but if you have something you would particularly like to talk about or cover please do let me know and we’ll see what we can do!  It would be great to have some ad hoc talks or particular subjects to discuss.

Generally it’s a social occasion, find out what’s occurring, network, meet other artists and catch up on the gossip.  We do our best to welcome everyone, but please plunge in and let us know who you are.  We love seeing your latest pieces of work, ideas, sketchbooks, poetry and writing.

Join Frome Artists Café on Facebook (there is a direct feed on our home page) and if you want to receive the Frome Artists Café e-news direct send your details to me: Caroline Walsh-Waring.

Newsletters are now on the Frome Artists Café Newsletter page, scroll down for News on local and nearby events.

Events, Exhibitions and stuff going on

Next Cafe – Wednesday 7th June 2017, 7.30pm, The Three Swans – Upstairs


A social evening in June, do bring along news of your events and let me know so that I can include them on this page for you.


Date change for July

I’ve decided to return July’s cafe to 5th July as the 12th is right in the middle of the Frome Festival and Open Studios and I am sure we will all be far too either tired or busy to come then.


If you have any events or exhibitions you would like included in the next newsletter email me at with details and/or a jpeg of your event and please send me your email address if you would like to subscribe.











I’m very happy to include details of your latest event here or in her monthly Frome Artists Cafe email, just contact me at with some text & or a jpeg.
